What a crazy - up and down type of week. I had 3 really rough days when I thought I might not ever get back to walking or working out normally. And then I've had 2 days like today... on top of the world.
This morning as I was coming back from the store getting the boy's birthday donuts, I realized that I was walking normally. Yes , normal for the first time in 5 weeks. No limp, nothing. This morning I did a short workout on the mini trampoline and it felt pretty good . I even put on a La Tortura and channeled Shakira - and didn't look like I was having a spasm.
I also had a nice dose of reality this week when I met a former college basketball player who had the same surgery as one of the procedures I had. He told me that his recovery took a full 3 months - with aggressive recovery - including daily physical therapy from the college athletic staff. It was helpful to hear this -- instead of "well everyone is different" , my doc's line .
Anyway - enough of all of that . I'm ready to set some goals.....
- December goal -- Lose 5lbs and travel 20 miles by foot.
- 20 miles either on treadmill or elliptical or bike.
